This Bugatti Chiron Looks Really Unwell – Because It’s A Hyundai

We get it. Anybody would want to drive around in a quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16-powered hypercar with 1,500 PS (1,479 HP) on tap. Unfortunately for the owner of this Hyundai Tiburon/Coupe, their solution doesn’t really work, from any standpoint.

The paint scheme and the mid-section design do indeed pay homage (in a poor way) to the mighty Chiron, while the rest of the car somehow manages to look worse than a stock second-gen Tiburon, which is what this is.

How do we know that? Mostly by looking at that angular crease on the door and the overall aesthetic of the front end. It also appears that the car features additional body cladding up front, as we’re unable to see the clear separation between the Tiburon’s front bumper and front fenders.

Other mods include the thick side skirts, the large C-shaped side line that existed even prior to the Chiron (on the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo), the large fin running across the middle and a massive rear wing to go with whatever was done to the rear end, where we’re not longer able to see the stock taillights – which on the Tiburon would have been visible from this angle.

In the end, we’re not the least bit surprised to have found this “thing” on Reddit’s dedicated thread for poor car mods. It actually ranks way up there together with the absolute worse Bugatti replicas we’ve ever seen, like this Veyron-wannabe BMW 6-Series, or this Honda Civic-based Veyron.

    At least we don’t have to do a name mashup with this one.

    Tiburon + Chiron still = Tiburon or Chiron. Very clever.

      Ok, but how about Hyundatti?

    They obviously spent a lot of time creating this. Not my thing… but if they’re happy. Great. And it doesn’t look…. uh. Well… it’s prettier than an Aztek.

  • Mr. EP9

    It was better off as a Tiburon.


    Where is the recalls news? CHOP CHOP


  • Stay classy, San Diego.

  • Brian C. Butcher

    Very… ummm, interesting.

  • Omg, it looks so much better then the original. Finally a decent looking modern Bugatti. Wait…. Its a Hyundai…..
